Press Release: SaltyPepper Studios Announces OUR (Android/iOS) Launch Date and Beta Contest


SaltyPepper Studios announced a new launch date for Once Upon a Runner (the mobile prequel to their PC ARPG, SaltyPepper) after missing their anticipated February 19th deadline. According to an article posted today at, "As a new studio producing it's first mobile project, issues in production are not only common, they are expected. Once Upon a Runner is no exception as we hit a slight snag in our production schedule and failed to hit our anticipated February 19th launch deadline. Do not fear! The setback is minor, and we are working harder than ever to ensure Once Upon a Runner hits Android and iOS Marketplaces within the next few weeks. To that end, we are pleased to announce that we expect Once Upon a Runner to officially launch on March 12th. Beta testing for the game will commence on March 5th, and we would like to invite some of you to participate!"

The article goes on to explain how 20 members of the community could not only win beta access to Once Upon a Runner, but a signed copy of an in-game Once Upon a Runner comic panel as well.

Executive Producer/CEO of SaltyPepper Studios, Mike Wiston, had this to say, "While it is disappointing that Once Upon a Runner did not launch yesterday as expected, we remain excited and dedicated to unveiling the game in the next few weeks. We have given ourselves a bit of a buffer zone with the new launch date to ensure a solid launch, and we are looking forward to getting the community involved in our beta. I am very proud of the work coming out of our studio, and the additional time to launch will help us ensure a great user experience from the start.”
